Storm Damage Repair

Our professional, friendly team can help you quickly and efficiently!

What should you do immediately after a storm?

According to the Met Office (the national meteorological service for the UK), six of the ten wettest years across the UK since 1862 have occurred since 1998. The service also says storms will likely be more intense as climate change warms the planet. Unfortunately, that may mean your risk of experiencing storm damage in your home or business is increasing, as well.

Damage following a storm can be stressful. At Northern Restorations, we specialise in the assessment and restoration of storm damage. Should inclement weather adversely affect your property, you can rely on our specialists to provide a quick and hassle-free service to get things back to normal.

Following a storm, there are a few essential steps you should take to help prevent long-term damage.

  • First, inspect your property for damage to your roof, gutters, windows, and doors, as well as any fallen trees or debris. If you see any damage, take photos and document it for insurance purposes. Signs of damage can include cracked, raised, or missing roof tiles; black marks on your roof tiles; dents on downspouts; or water spots or stains on your interior ceilings.


  • If you can do it safely, clear any debris as soon as possible. This can prevent further damage to your property as well as removing hazards for people walking or driving near your home.


  • It’s a good idea to check for any leaks in your home or property. Look for signs of water damage, such as wet spots on the walls or ceiling, and inspect your pipes and taps for leaks.


If you find any damage to your property—especially if it’s your roof, windows, cladding, or gutters—it should be repaired as soon as possible. Failure to make these repairs could lead to more severe damage in the future. And keep in mind that, while most damage is more than obvious, there may be unseen damage, like an elusive leak in your roof. That’s why it’s always a good idea to contact a professional restoration service following a storm to schedule an inspection.

The most common issues that we see include:

Emergency Storm Damage Repairs

At Northern Restorations, we’re equipped to handle emergency repairs to homes or properties damaged by storms throughout West Yorkshire and northern UK. Some of our residential storm damage repair services include:

  • Emergency boarding-up and tarping: After a damaging storm, our specialists will first secure your property by boarding up any broken windows or doors and covering damaged roofs with tarps to prevent any further damage from the elements.

  • Pumping water out: If your property has been flooded by a storm, our flood and storm damage experts will extract the water using powerful state-of-the-art pumping equipment. We’ll also assess the level of moisture in the building materials and remove any standing water or moisture that can lead to mould and mildew growth.

  • Safeguarding your treasures: If the storm damage is severe, your electronics, furniture, artwork, photographs, documents, and other important items may not be safe inside your building. We’ll remove these items from damaged areas and store them in a safe and secure location until the restoration process is complete. In some cases , and if possible, we’ll clean damaged items at our offsite facility.

  • Drying and dehumidification: Severe storms are often accompanied by floods or excess rains. If there’s water damage, we’ll employ specialised equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers to dry out your home or business. This also helps prevent further damage from mould growth and ensure your property is safe to live in.

  • Cleaning and sanitising: Water damage often needs to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised to remove contaminants and odours. At Northern Restorations, we have a battery of specialised cleaning products and equipment, such as foggers and ozone machines to get your property back to normal.

  • Restoration and reconstruction: The final step is to restore your property to its pre-storm condition. This may involve repairing or replacing damaged materials, such as drywall, flooring, and insulation. We can work with your insurance company to ensure that the restoration process is covered under the policy—and done in a timely fashion.
